Positive for hsv-1 and never a cold sore?

Recommended Posts

BEAUTIFULLYDAMAGEDMAMA

My results showed up on positive for HSV-1 with 3.10 and HSV-2 with 1.17. I have never had a cold sore out break. Is it possible to have the virus and never have an outbreak? My Mother gets cold sores, but neither my Brother or Father have had any out breaks. Also my doctor relunctantly wrote me script for acyclovir for daily suppression. She told me that I didnt need it since my HSV-2 which is Gential was really low, but I insisted since I want to protect my current partner.

There are many of us that have the virus but never in there life time had an OB, and we are refer as CARRIERS. but still have the ability to spread just like everyone who as it.

Your HSV-2 is possibly a false positive unless you have actually had symptoms. I would get retested using HSV-2 biokit , or western blot test.

yes it is possible not to have had an outbreak

I'm guessing that my hsv-2 is a low number due to testing a month after my encounter. I have only had one outbreak with only one bump and have been itchy. I wish it was a false positive, but I have had two of the symptoms.

You might be right, but the only way you'll know for sure is to get a test result that is above the low positive range prior to 3 months past your last encounter, or to wait 3 months and retest, or to swab any future sores.

Another possibility is that you have genital HSV-1, and your HSV-2 result is a false positive.

      Anyone heard of this research before? Dutch professor promoted in September 2017 on it and had some interesting results on patients with severe HSV1 symptoms. (last alinea) "Healing severe cold sore
      Arts achieved a remarkable success in research into three patients with a herpes infection. An infection with a herpes virus is common and leads to, for example, a cold sore. In the three patients, the symptoms were much heavier with ulcers throughout the face. Genetic research yielded three different genetic defects, but functional research showed that all three patients had a shortage of the antibody interferon gamma (IFN-γ). This explained the severe symptoms. A treatment in which the shortage of IFN-γ was abolished, caused the symptoms to disappear like snow in the sun for all three patients." (its in Dutch but you can translate by right clicking)
